“I am very proud of our team and I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the walk or made a donation”, stated Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton and honorary co-chair of the event.

Over 7,000 people were on site and raised a record-breaking $1.3M.

Should people invest in virtual currencies such as bitcoins? While experts may have differing opinions, they do agree that caution is essential.

Additionally, for many people, the biggest draw with cryptocurrencies is not their monetary value so much as the underlying technology—blockchain—that allows these currencies to function like a digital currency.

Every bitcoin transaction worldwide is recorded in a public database. The technology can be applied in a wide range of fields and according to Louis Roy, Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Blockchain Leader, “is particularly interesting in terms of revenue traceability.” He added, “In a supply chain, several businesses can share a decentralized ledger rather than having their own. The blockchain reinforces IT security and reduces administrative costs.” Other promising fields where blockchain could be applied are finance and copyright management.

Many Quebecers dream of spending some of their retirement in Florida. To prevent this dream from turning into a nightmare, you need to know what to expect tax-wise, especially if you acquired some property there.

Your first step is to consult a U.S. tax specialist.

Mylène Tétreault, Senior Manager, U.S. Tax, reiterates the importance of having a clear understanding of the U.S. resident tax principle. Established at 183 days over three years, this principle follows the following cumulative calculation rule: 100% of the days for the current year; the number of days multiplied by a one-third for the previous year; and the number of days multiplied by a sixth for the prior year.

For more information on the tax issues relating to owning property in the United States, read the article published in Magazine Prestige on September 28, 2018.

If you’d still like to go ahead and purchase a property in the U.S., call on the services of our tax specialists who are well versed in the tax laws applicable to the United States and abroad!
